GREATER DES MOINES, IA (Feb. 23, 2018) — The Greater Des Moines Partnership has announced that Jack Schroeder, Vice President of IT at Aureon, will be the next presenter in the Top Five for Small Business series. Schroeder will present on the “Top Five Things to Know About Securing Your Data.” The Top Five series features presentations to inform, educate and inspire business owners in Greater Des Moines (DSM). The events focus on a variety of timely topics that affect business owners and managers including legal, human resources, information technology, marketing, accounting and other pressing issues.

The event will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 28 at the Greater Des Moines Partnership, 700 Locust St., Ste. 100. Schroeder’s presentation will begin at Noon.

Businesses continue to seek new ways to protect their data and mitigate cybersecurity risk.

  • Strategies to reduce data breach risk and improve business continuity.
  • Securing a business's network and users.
